Memperkenalkan Kebebasan Media Dan Bersuara à la PKR

12 11 2017

Dua hari lepas, kerajaan negeri Selangor dibawah pimpinan Datuk Seri Azmin Ali memberi arahan kepada semua jabatan, agensi, dan anak syarikat kerajaan negeri Selangor untuk berhenti melanggan akhbar kumpulan Utusan dan Berita Harian.

Ini adalah sebuah berita yang agak menarik bagi saya, kerana selama ini pembangkanglah yang kononnya memperjuangkan hak kebebasan bersuara dan kebebasan media.

Menggunakan alasan kebebasan bersuara adalah satu hak yang diperuntukkan di dalam Perkara 10 Perlembagaan Persekutuan, mereka mahu media mereka diberi kebebasan berkata apa sahaja, walaupun perkara itu satu fitnah atau perkara itu boleh menggugat keselamatan negara.

Tetapi apabila Utusan dan Berita Harian tidak mengikut telunjuk mereka, boleh pula kerajaan PKR mengarahkan jabatan, agensi dan anak syarikat negeri Selangor berhenti melanggan akhbar-akhbar tersebut.

Jadi, di manakah kebebasan media dan kebebasab bersuara yang mereka perjuangkan selama ini?

Kita boleh lihat betapa tidak adilnya dan tidak beretikanya kerajaan pembangkang ini yang jelas mengamalkan sikap ‘double standard’.

‘Cakap tak serupa bikin’, nampaknya kebebasan bersuara hanyalah untuk mereka sahaja dan bukannya untuk semua orang.

Malah, akhbar Utusan Online melaporkan, “Ketua Penerangan UMNO, Tan Sri Annuar Musa berkata, tindakan itu menunjukkan Mohamed Azmin hanya hebat dalam mengharamkan akhbar Melayu, tetapi menikus dalam mengharamkan pesta arak dan penolakan usul memperkasa mahkamah syariah di negeri itu.”

Maka mungkin benarlah dakwaan bahawa Selangor Kini, Sinar Harian dan The Star adalah suara yang menyokong pembangkang!

Apa kata Bersih, COMANGO, C4 dan semua NGO yang selama ini memperjuangkan kebebasan bersuara dan kebebasan akhbar?

Tun Musa Hitam Proud To Be A Liberal, What A Pity

26 12 2014

Tun Musa Hitam

Always a moderate and proud to be one – said Former Deputy Prime Minister, Tun Musa Hitam to The Star in an interview at his house in Bukit Tunku.

“First let me say this emphatically and very firmly – I have always been a liberal and a moderate and am proud of it. I have been brought up from young until now as such. My family, my parents, my elders brought me up that way, and in my more grown up days since I entered politics, my political party Umno adopted the stance of moderation from the early days that we gained Independence. But I don’t know what’s happening there now,” Tun Musa Hitam. – The Star

“I have always been a liberal and a moderate and am proud of it”?

I do not understand how could a Muslim be proud to disobey the rules of Islam.

It is very sad when a person says that he is proud to be a moderate and a liberal because being a liberal  means that the person rejects the fundamental principal of his own religion as well as the fundamental principals of his country.

As a Muslim, he must understand that a Muslim must obey the fundamental principal of Islam and Islam cannot be liberalised.

It is very unfortunate for a Muslim to be a liberal because rejecting the principal of Islam is against the rules of Islam and will affect his ‘akidah’.

Has Tun Musa Hitam forgotten that Clause 3.3 of the Umno Constitution states that Umno will defend and spread Islam?

And liberal is against Islam.

It is very sad to see a former leader who not only had forgotten the core spirit of his party but also proud to reject the fundamental principals of his country, for Islam is the religion of the Federation of Malaysia.
